President Donald Trump has slammed special counsel Robert Mueller's forthcoming report on the Russia investigation.

Muller’s team has been examining the role of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is soon to make their findings public.

Ahead of the release, the president accused Mueller of "covering all of his conflicts of interest" during the probe.

President Trump also questioned why Mueller isn't investigating "crimes of many kinds from those 'on the other side'," before asking "whatever happened to Podesta?"

According to the Daily Caller, Trump’s tweets come just days after his legal team submitted written answers to Mueller’s team concerning Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“The questions presented dealt with issues regarding the Russia-related topics of the inquiry.

"The President responded in writing,” presidential lawyer Jay Sekulow said in a statement to reporters last week.

Trump’s submitted questions likely mark the ending of the nearly two-year special counsel investigation, with a hotly anticipated report on his findings.

The report will first be submitted to the Department of Justice, which is currently being overseen by Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.

Whitaker will then make a decision on how and when to release the report to Congress.

The president’s critics have long alleged that Trump or his team of advisors colluded with the Russian government to influence the election.

Mueller and his team originally sought to interview the president in a sit-down setting, a request his legal team rebuffed.

The refusal launched speculation as to whether Mueller would attempt to subpoena the president, though past legal guidance indicated that it was not possible to do so to the chief executive.

Trump has maintained staunchly that there was no collusion, and his team points to the lack of charges of any 2016 campaign official for the offense.

Mueller’s team has expended much of its resources going after former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort for illegal business dealings with the Ukrainian government years earlier and indicted some top-ranking officials for lying to the FBI.
